Third time's the charm?

The Dolton cop recently exposed for assaulting a special needs student on videotape has a troubled past -- including killing a man in a disputed case of self-defense -- and also happens to be in jail on unaffiliated rape charges.

Christopher Lloyd, 38, was identified Thursday by his father Charles Lloyd and Dolton Mayor Ronnie Lewis as the officer who was recorded by a school security camera scuffling with 15-year-old, 140-pound Marshawn Pitts at the Academy for Learning in Dolton, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Lloyd's father, of course, says his son's innocent.

Lloyd was arrested last month for sexually assaulting a woman he knew at her home in Hammond. Lloyd allegedly held a pillow over the woman's face while he sexually assaulted her. He's being heald in lieu of $110,000 bail and faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted.

As for the self-defense killing, Lloyd was sued by his ex-wife who says Lloyd shot and killed her new husband in front of their children outside their home.

An autopsy showed Lloyd shot the man 24 times.

Lloyd was suspended from his then-job as a Robbins officer, but found work in Dolton afterwards.
